Nuria and her team have workd with esteemed French winemaker Claude Gros where Garnacha is without doubt the star grape. The winery relies almost entirely on solar power and continues through the committment to lowerning environmental impact by recycling rainfall for use throughout the facility.

Tasting Notes

Bright crimson in colour, this wine is very expressive with notes of red fruits and minerals that leap from the glass. Plenty of fruit on the palate, a touch of complexity, and sweet tannins.
